Forever Plaid won a 2014 Mitty Award for Best Ensemble of the Year!
In the category – Most Impressive Ensemble – Professional Division: The amazing quartet of young performers who brought us Forever Plaid at Actors Theatre of Indiana. From my review: “ATI’s Plaids are Kurt Semmler (Smudge), Steve Griest (Frankie), Will Hutcheson (Jinx) and Tim Hunt (Sparky). These four amazingly talented young men sing the show’s 30 song set with remarkable close harmony, with choreography straight from the 50’s doo-wop era, and with unbelievably sustained energy! Each member shines in their solos and coordinates perfectly in the ensemble pieces. Showing fine acting skills as well as their singing talents – these four men present a dynamic 90 minute romp, filled with the many songs, a few short sketches and some lively banter. Their presentation is so keenly polished throughout the show, it is stunning to realize these four performers got together for the first time less than 2 months ago.”
